2. San Francisco FrontRunners
San Francisco FrontRunners is the first running club in the nation to promote the sports of running, walking, and related athletic activities for the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer community and supporters. SFFR is a fun place to meet new people who share your passion for running and walking! They welcome adults of all ages, sizes, genders, ethnicities, and speeds, and have organized runs/walks three times a week.

SFFR is very flexible, consistent and sensitive to runners of all types. While many SFFR runners take part in organized races, there is no obligation to do so. They also have movie nights, theater outings, picnics, bar nights, and participate in a variety of volunteering activities throughout the year! For more information, visit:

4. Bay to Breakers
Bring your craziest costumes (or lack thereof) and your beer (only if you can hide it well), and participate in one of the largest (and strangest) races in America! Every May, the famous "Bay to Breakers" comes to town where 30,000+ people race/walk/stroll 7.46 miles from Bay (Howard St./Beale St.) to Breakers (the western end of Golden Gate Park) in a costumed mass of people.
